HENDERSON COUNTY, NC – A 16-year-old girl in North Carolina made a heartbreaking post on Facebook before she took her own life just before Christmas.

WLOS reported Amber Cornwell committed suicide Dec. 20 and was laid to rest the day after Christmas.

Officials said Cornwell asked on the social media site, if she died that night, “would anyone cry?”

Her friends and family said they believe bullying led Cornwell to take her own life.
